TUESDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2008 – TUESDAY DECEMBER 23, 2008 Change rarely follows sanctioned plot lines. Rather it often pivots around hoax, hyperbole, and stray details. These phantom turning points are not easily taxonomized or moralized within orthodox political logic. We expect the right story—an epic binary tale of enemies and innocents, when it is often the wrong story—a little epidemic of rumor and duplicity—that rules the world.  Still, the fact that most pigs are wearing lipstick...
